Collections

A collaborative proposal for the DNA Zoo: a biological tissue and DNA collection available online, managed by the Puerto Rico Zoo (Zoológico de Puerto Rico Dr. Juan A. Rivero) and the Biology Department, University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez

Puerto Rico Zoo has a large collection of tissues from vertebrate species representing an assortment of species from the exposition as well as the diversity of fauna from the entire island, including rare, endemic and threatened native species of fish, amphibians, reptilians, birds and mammals.  These collections are especially well represented by large African species, species from South and Central America, as well as Puerto Rico and the neighboring Caribbean.
